The bite cools down as summer temperatures rise Michael Condon Staff Writer If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles. --Doug Larson The so-called dog days of summer are a bit early this year. That should not be a surprise considering the drought we are in. The lack of snowfall this year is starting to take a toll on lake levels and water temperatures. Lake Almanor The water levels are higher than most north state reservoirs but the water temperatures are on the rise and that has the bite falling off a bit. Successful anglers are working the deeper and cooler water. The trout are changing the focus of their diet from insects to pond smelt. Try trolling fast-action lures or the usual crawler and dodger combination. Rig your gear from 25 to 30 feet deep. Then sit back and enjoy the scenery. There are some nice fish to be caught, but the action will not be as hot as it has been the past few months. Goose Island to Rocky Point and Big Springs are good spots. The key is finding the cooler water. Bucks Lake Many local anglers head to Bucks Lake for the kokanee salmon when the bite at other local lakes slows down. The kokanee bite is strong and anglers are picking up lots of 12- to 14-inch kokanee along with a few larger rainbows and Mackinaw. Try Uncle Larry's spinners behind a dodger fished 25 to 35 feet deep. Lake Davis Fishing has been decent but the warmer water is starting to take its toll. Bank anglers have been catching a few nice rainbows on night crawlers and garlic scented PowerBait. Trollers are doing well with the Dick Nite Copper RedHead between the island and Mallard Cove. There are still a few damsels and midges hatching, but fewer fly anglers are working the lake as the temperatures rise. Some guides have stopped fishing Davis for the remainder of the summer as the bite starts to drop off and the warmer water makes safely releasing fish more difficult. Eagle Lake Surface temperatures at -: Eagle Lake have topped 70 :. degrees. The fish head for deeper water to cool offwhen surface temperatures get this high. The best fishing is early in the morning in the deeper water. Try trolling Needle fish i or Speedy Shiners 30 to 40 feet, deep. The Spaulding boat ramp is :-: the only usable ramp with the.'.' : cttrrent low water conditions. :' Stream fishing Current drought conditions, have the river levels way below normal for this time of year. The key to good stream fishing is to find the feeder creeks and springs that flow i ::" into the larger stream. These '- -" inflows help maintain colder water that trout thrive in. k If the there is good news for, stream anglers it has to be that the warmer weather has brought out the grasshoppers. Both bait anglers and fly anglers can take advantage of these big bugs. Work the edges of the stream banks. A :" "" juicy grasshopper or hopper , imitation can entice some big fish to bite when little else ' will work. Parent meeting scheduled for GHS football players Samantha P.
